A Divided World and Dis-United Kingdom

General information
The start of 2019 saw a global return to record highs of trust inequality with a large gap in trust levels between the informed public and mass population. But is this trend mirrored in trust trends in the health sector?

What do these results indicate and how can you leverage these global and local insights to deliver more impactful outcomes for your health business into the future?

Join us for a first look at the 2019 health sector results of the Edelman Trust Barometer - the largest, annual, global survey of trust in the world.

Our event will feature a presentation by Edelman EMEA Health Practice Chair Carolyn Paul on this year’s results and will be followed by a robust panel discussion diving into the business and communication impacts for people working in the health industry.

This will be followed by a short Q&A with the audience.

Our panellists include:
  • Padraig Belton, BBC Technology and Business reporter (covering health technology)
  • Alice Choi, Chair Healthcare Communications Association
  • Carolyn Paul, EMEA Health Practice Chair, Edelman
  • Jane Symons, freelance journalist
Refreshments to be provided.  This is an HCA and Edelman exclusive event.
